Helicopter pad turning into sprawling rooftop bar at night, with amazing 360° views over KL.
If you are looking for certain and uninterrupted 360-views, and a completely open and airy terrace, this is the place! Just as the name suggests, Helipad KL is a big helipad made into a Kuala Lumpur rooftop bar. Cool fact: daytime it is actually still used as a real helipad.
Up here you have a magical and panoramic view of the entire city and as far as the eye can see. Nothing for people with fear of heights, as there are no rail or walls, just you and all of the city at your feet.
There is an indoor main lounge with a aeronautical theme on the 34th floor, and from here you have to take two flights of stairs to get to the 36th floor helipad. The terrace is quite low key and simple in decoration, with a mix of plastic chairs and some more comfy lounge chairs. Understandable, the view is the main decoration.
The rooftop bar offers classic cocktails and all the regulars of beers, wine and spirits.
The best time to visit the Helipad is at sunset, as watching the sun go down over Kuala Lumpur is something really special. Tip is actually to try and be here as close to opening as possible, as it is a popular place and the seats up top fills up rather quickly. Later at night the vibe at Helipad usually is pretty high, with a younger crowd enjoying the night.
Helipad, or Heli Lounge Bar as it is also called, might not be the top rooftop in Kuala Lumpur in terms of decoration and drinks, but it is a truly a unique experience, and with the amazing views on display it is well worth a visit.
